High school girls invited to Women in Science Day at UT

More than 100 future engineers and scientists will visit The University of Toledo as part of the third annual Women in Science Day of Meetings, WISDOM, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 8, 2012.

During the meeting, girls in their sophomore or junior year in high school will visit both the UT Main Campus and Health Science Campus to learn about science and technology. Girls will explore and perform experiments in a number of areas: physics and astronomy, chemistry, biology, engineering and medicine.

The event is hosted by the Northwest Ohio Chapter of the Association for Women In Science (AWIS), which hopes that the exploration day will encourage young women to consider careers in one of the areas offered at the Women in Science Day.

“Girls are increasingly interested in science, but there continues to be a lower number of girls pursing that interest in college and subsequently their careers,” said Isabel Escobar, professor of chemical and environmental engineering, interim assistant dean for research development and outreach for the college of engineering, and past-president of AWIS. “It is our goal that events like Women in Science Day will inspire girls to embrace science and technology.”

Students from all Toledo Public Schools as well as Toledo Islamic Academy will participate in the Women in Science Day at UT.

The event is sponsored by the Northwest Ohio Chapter of the Association for Women in Science, the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women, the Colleges of Engineering and Medicine, the Toledo Chapter of the American Chemical Society, and SSOE.
